Maybe I was naive in thinking that my pregnancy (ies hopefully someday!) would be just like my mother's. But, I hoped nonetheless.

She never had even a hint of nausea in all of her 3 pregnancies, and felt so energetic and motivated, she said it was great.

Well, already I have experienced smell aversions, nausea, fatigue, vivid dreams, not sleeping well and generally feeling fat. My jeans don't fit! How is this the case already? I am only 4 weeks along! (The whole 4 weeks thing, when really I have only been pregnant for two because of ovulation is all kind of weird, but that's another post). Apparently with the influx of hormones comes a constant state of PMS-type bloat.

The waves of nausea hit like a ton of bricks and then are gone within a few minutes (usually). But, this is a very new and strange world for this girl with a cast iron stomach. I can count on 1 hand the amount of times I have thrown up in my adult life. Ugh. I hate throwing up, so hopefully it won't come to that.

I am probably being naive again, but if I am, don't say anything. I beg you.

4 weeks, 6 days

  1. Yeah let me tell you, in ALL my pregnancy research I never realized that the two weeks before I actually conceive I'm considered "pregnant". That was definitely confusing!

    My first symptoms were also smell aversions and the boobie pain...oh the boobie pain.
